The Big Lie (1951). Yeah, it was propaganda, but it was also true. I went to school with a guy whose family escaped from communist Hungary in a hot air balloon. You can laugh, say that “It can’t happen here,” but it IS happening here.
Bad Manners – one of my favorite Brit Ska bands.
Reel Big Fish. They were kinda awesome.
No one could out-ska the Skatalites.

Go find your 3D red/blue glasses for this one (or turn off the 3D and watch the 2D version).
Roots reggae with The Mighty Diamonds, live at Channel 1 in Kingston, Jamaica. Nice harmonies.
The Skatalites‘ classic “Simmer Down,” has great audio but a so-so video. So what, I like it.
And we’ll wrap up this babozo with The Supersuckers‘ “Born With A Tail.” (Some NSFK language.)
Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more fun stuffage.
How to get a baboon to tell you where the water is in the Kalahari. Amazing. [Found here.]
The logical follow up to that video is The Baboons‘ “Drinkin’ Gasoline.” (Don’t laugh, they were on Walker, Texas Ranger, and if Mr. N says they’re awesome then they ARE awesome.)
The logical follow up to that video is more Rockabilly. Here are the Guana Batz with “Streetwise.” Following the Guana Batz we have:
The Aquabats! Here’s a live version of “Fashion Zombies.” One last one before we go:
The Skatalites‘ rock steady ska with “Lawless Street.” Have a great weekend folks, see y’all tomorrow.
Johnny “Dizzy” Moore passed on in August of 2008, so as a late tribute, here are the Skatalites:
Biographical info on Dizzy Moore can be found at this site (which has it’s own ska track auto play by the way.)
